Senior lecturer at Cambridge Judge Business School explores the future for helium as a natural resource in a new book, which has been reviewed exclusively in Nature
Dr William Nuttall, Senior Lecturer in Technology Policy at Cambridge Judge Business School, has co-edited a new book illustrating how helium is a key natural resource with significant relevance for high technology.
The book, entitled The Future of Helium as a Natural Resource reveals the changing dynamics of the helium industry on both the supply-side and the demand-side and was published by Routledge, London and New York, as part of the ‘Explorations in Environmental Economies’ series in May 2012.
With his co-editors, Richard H. Clarke and Professor Bartek A. Glowacki, Dr Nuttall studies the potential impact of helium in a number of fields, including medical imaging and the nuclear industry, as well as its global influence in major national economies, such as Russia and India. It is hoped that the book will appeal to students, especially post-graduates, in a wide range of disciplines, including resource economics, physics, chemistry, energy studies, earth sciences, and environmental sciences.
Dr William Nuttall is Assistant Director of the Electricity Policy Research Group at the School. His research centres upon issues concerning energy technologies and public policy, with a major area of activity relating to nuclear energy, the nuclear fuel cycle and possibilities for advanced nuclear energy technologies.
Richard H. Clarke is a Cryogenic Process and Helium Specialist at Culham Centre for Fusion Energy, a UK-based research organisation developing fusion as a sustainable, long-term energy source.
Professor Bartek A. Glowacki is Reader in the Department of Materials Science and Metallurgy for the University of Cambridge.
